“Psychedelic Promos & Radio Spots” is an outa-site
eight-volume series that includes hundreds of (very slightly) trippy radio commercials
for shuttered music clubs, new records and movies, upcoming concerts and discontinued
products from a half-century ago.
You'll also hear then-popular rock groups performing groovy advertising
jingles for cereals, soda, shoe stores, jeans, hot dogs and deodorant. (My
personal favorites are Iron Butterfly for Ban roll-on, and the Rolling Stones
for Rice Krispies.) Put some flowers in your hair, adjust your granny glasses and love beads,
and take a trip back to the swingin' '60s!
Each volume includes a full-color cover
illustration. Audio files are individual lo-fi MP3s, numbered
sequentially within each volume for no apparent reason. Some volumes are
missing a file or two; I don’t have them, so please don’t ask for them.
